Too high of expectations for my home course round this Sunday, still posted my best score but it was far from what I was hoping for; I have lots of work to do if going to break 100 on this course in my 1 year time frame.

Moved back away from the hook to the crap smorgasbord but that's usually how my recovery cycle starts.

It was windy, cold, sometimes wet, and I shot an 85.

It was pleasant with good company and better weather than I could hope for this time of year, still bad Golf but not as frustratingly bad as before.

cold, wind, leaves, cloudiness/no sun/perpetual gloom, dead grass/hardpan lies made me wish I was watching golf on tv

Last 9 of the year. It was cool. Booked as a single, joined two guys. Had a bogey round. The two guys were decent golfers, both shot 2 over. They were entertaining, chirping about every shot the other made.

I paid for golf and got a great show.

Best round ever, most birdies ever, and one drive hooked into a hazard away from breaking par. (Oh, and perhaps not coincidentally, it was on my birthday)

Nice!

My contribution for today is "Green in regulation from the adjacent fairway."

Saturday: Solid off the tee, poor short irons, iffy putting, 95.
Sunday (nine holes with the lady): Inconsistent off the tee, good mid and short irons, better putting, 44.

Promising and encouraged. I have been working on my swing and noticed that the number of mishits that have plagued my game have been less and less. Looking forward to keeping up during the winter if my course stays open. I usually don't keep score as I am in practice mode, but plan on starting to keep the score next round.

Lowest score I have posted on a par 72 course (and technically rated more difficult than my home course) but somehow still unsatisfied with the final score and thinking I need to do more if I am going to break 100 my first year.

Did you see that Pin Placement? - And is that ball ever going to stop rolling?

    • Day 51 I decided to mix it up today after going to Golf Galaxy to try out some new irons. I struck the ball terribly but realized I was overswinging as I'm prone to do on a simulator. It got me to thinking about the LSW section about practicing at the edge of your competence. I realized that I had been practicing with very slow swings and not redefining where my edge of competence was. So today I filmed a series of swings starting with what felt like 50% then moved up a little faster and progressed to a series where I was swinging like I did on the simulator. I found that with each step up the speed ladder my swing slowly deteriorated but was still much improved over where I started even at full speed. My conclusion was that I need to start practicing at about 75%-80% in the garage if I'm going to get to the next level. Those swings we're good but seemed to be the point where more flaws started showing up on occasion. If I can't get it mastered at that speed I might need to go to 60% or so and then try back at 75-80%. In reality I would like the 75-80% to be my standard swing and not always feel like I'm going after it hard every time when I'm on the course (which is a tough habit to break for me)
    • Back, heel, toe, doesn't really matter as this amount of tape won't change ball flight based on location of it. Just trying to see if a heavier head changes anything in your results.
    • Wow, thanks for the extensive review of this course. I don't have a good enough memory to comment specifically on any of these. I'm going to have to go back through my Arccos data and refresh my memory, then I can comment. The course is like a 2-1/2 hour drive for me as well, but it's a course we normally like to play when we do sales team events. Plus I used to have customers up in that neck of the woods so I'd play it with them once in a while.  I've always enjoyed my experiences at the course. Of course, none of us play at the level of you or @saevel25. AND, I've I've never played it while it was soggy. I really do appreciate the review you and @saevel25 gave. I've always thought of this as one of the premium type courses in the upper Ohio area, so most of my Ohio friends rave about it. 
    • I have not played the Forward tees at my home course.  We have played the forward and/or senior tees a few times in 2020.  Recently I played a couple Tournament rounds from forward tees (two different courses with par 71/70, about 5,200 yards with a Men's course rating/slope around 65.0/113).  The round at Fox Creek, tee to green was excellent and I rolled the putts well for a 72 (6.3 differential). The next day at Whispering Willows, I had a few loose shots and 4 more putts for an 80 (16.1 differential).  Having played both courses at yardages around 6,100 yards, the differences are about what one might expect.  Off the tee there are a number of holes with doglegs or penalty areas that require shorter but still accurate tee shots. Other holes allow one to hit as far as possible.  For a long hitter driving some par 4 greens is possible and all the par 5's are potentially reachable.  Almost every approach shot is with a much more lofted club.  Errant shots still find trouble, just closer to the green.  One typically will hit more greens in regulation and on average be closer to the hole. What I found was every bogey is magnified.  At 5,200 yards one needs to make pars and birdies to have any hope of shooting a differential under one's index.  If one is not putting decently or a bit loose tee to green, one is going to embarrass oneself [see Day 2 above 😉].
